If the general election is the cake, than the passage of something like Proposition 2 in California is truly the icing! Proposition 2 ends the practice of confining certain animals raised for food in crates and cages so small the animals can barely move. It applies to breeding pigs, egg laying hens and veal calves.

The measure will go into effect in 2015 to give factory farms time to transition to new housing systems.

Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, said in a blog entry, “Life is going to get better for millions of farm animals.”

“And that’s thanks to so very many of you—those of you who voted for California’s Prop 2, those of you who donated time and money and support in the campaign, as well as the countless others of you who cheered from other states. This is the most ambitious ballot measure for animals ever undertaken. The energy that propelled us to victory was incredible—and that’s not overstatement. From the thousands of people who helped gather the petition signatures to put Prop 2 on the ballot to those who staffed the phone banks and knocked on doors to get out the vote, this was a show of grassroots might.”

Congrats to all those that worked so hard to get this measure passed!
